Make the music you love
Throughout the course you will be encouraged and supported to write your own music as a priority. Our instructors’ tastes and experience are varied, so they are able to support in a number of genres from EDM to singer/songwriter.

Everyone who completes the course will receive a certificate of completion, however, students can also opt to take an RSL graded examination in music production. This is a great way to reinforce what you’ve learnt on the course, benchmark your skill level and gain some UCAS points.

Entry Criteria

Garnish Music London does not have formal entry criteria. We understand that people begin their musical journeys in different ways and we want to support that.

In order to participate in the course, we would expect you to have a basic idea of music production. If you’ve played around with a DAW, you’ll know enough; if you’re an instrumentalist, that’s also sufficient – we’re here to teach you the rest. As part of the application process, we will conduct an interview with you to determine that you’re a good fit and on the same page as your fellow learners!
